Highly placed sources within the Thokozani Khupe led MDC-T have indicated that the vengeful leader will next week recall all MDC Alliance women councillors who did not attend ZANU PF leader Emmerson Mnangagwa’s meeting with women councillors from around the country.

According to the sources, Khupe is very angry at the stance taken by the councillors who she personally sent notices to attend the indaba.

Khupe herself attended the meeting.

In the meeting, Mnangagwa assured the meeting that he will over ride the constitution and introduce a quota for women councillors as is the case with women in parliament.

You are advocating for an improvement in your representation at local government level. We fought for democracy and there was a lot of sacrifice by the girl child and boy child for us to achieve that democracy. Currently councillors are elected on the basis of that democracy,” he said.

“You are now asking me to panel-beat democracy in order to meet our needs rather than our needs to be met through plain democracy. Fortunately, I am in agreement with you, and that is granted, and I will ask the Minister of Local Government to begin the process,” said the President to a thunderous applause from the councillors.
